Summary: Upgraded from an old Linksys WRT54G. I was having problems with streaming video from Netflix and other sites being poor quality, despite having upgraded CPU/Graphics Card. Figured I'd try the D-Link card and the problems were all fixed. It also worked with Windows 7 Beta 1, my other reason for making the switch. Installation was quick and simple on both XP and Windows 7.
Works well; instructions for WEP access could be much better.

Summary: Easy to install in the computer; not so easy to connect if you've got WEP security enabled on your router. First off, the instruction manual says to install the adapter BEFORE loading the drivers onto the computer from the included CD. But, the "quick installation guide" says the opposite - install the drivers first! Generally I install drivers before hardware, and I did that this time and it worked just fine.
Summary: This card works in Ubuntu 7.04 - card was automatically detected and I was online in no time. Haven't tried Windows yet - I'll post once I've used. One thing I was curious was that the signal strength ranges around 28 - 33% even though my router is only 15 feet away. I'm afraid to increase the distance but as of now, no discernable speed loss.
Summary: Setup was a breeze on my XP system. Setup CD was not needed. Device card was immediately recognized and went into service. The network was previously set up. I gave the device only 4 stars for reliability because signal strength from a cable-connected wireless router only 100 feet away fluctuates through the day, between good and very weak, and I don't know the cause.
Summary: I bought this wireless card to replace the Linksys WMP54G v4.1 which I could never make it to work with Suse 10. To my total surprise, this D-Link WDA-1320 works with Suse 10 without any hassle - no need to use Ndiswrapper and 3rd party driver. The card was correctly detected by the system after the machine was booted up in Linux mode (it's a dual boot machine). I configured the card using Suse's YaST2 tool and that's it. This card doesn't have a great range.
Works fine with Vista Home Premium 64-bit operating system

Summary: This adapter is Vista Compatible and its box bears the logo that states this very clearly. Not all such products have the logo, and experience is teaching me that you definitely want the logo that proves certification beyond a doubt. Installation is a breeze... just insert the card into an empty PCI slot in the motherboard, close up the computer, and then screw the antenna onto the little gold-plated stub that sticks out the back of the case.
Summary: I bought this card after having tried other brands to replace a malfunctioning linksys Wireless-G card. With WindowsXP SP2 I simply installed the card and on boot-up told XP to look on the CD for the drivers. Hey presto, installed. Used the Windows Wireless manager to set up my WPA-PSK connection and off we went. Solid connection and my wife is now happy again because her internet connection is no longer flaky.
Summary: The D-link WDA-1320 adapter works well for me. It was easy to install and setup. The signal strength is excellent in my case since the distance between the router and adapter is not that great. I suspect it could be a problem in large homes with multiple rooms between the router and the adapter.
Summary: I purchased this wireless network card to replace a flakey Linksys WMP54G Wireless-G PCI Adapter that was used constantly for almost 6 years (card has recently become unreliable). From experience with other computers using this card with Ubuntu Linux since 2006, I knew that this wireless card is recognized by Ubuntu Linux and "works out of the box" without using any special drivers or other tricks like using ndiswrapper with Windows XP drivers.
